Being someone who loves to shop for flowers when Valentineâ??s Day is around the corner, it was very important for me to find out who are the best florists. Now everything is on the web and this makes things easy.

You go to the websites of really good florists and shop for the best flowers you can get for Valentineâ??s Day. Nowadays most of the companies have tie-ups with local florists and that makes sure that the flowers are really good.

There are quite a few websites worth checking out for your Valentineâ??s Day purchase.

The Los Angeles based Teleflora.com is an excellent online florist. They have a very extensive network and the quality of their flowers and the arrangements are first-rate.Ftd.com is quite reputed too and it gives the option of ordering flowers via telephone.

A remarkably noteworthy website is pickupflowers.com, which delivers flowers internationally. An experience a friend of mine narrates has to do with his wife being in Turkey and the flowers being delivered to her by pickupflowers. growerflowers.com is good at its business because they attend to the freshness of the flowers. They do other gifts too, which sort of affects their focus.

1-800-flowers.com has a large network across the United States and over the years they have made their mark in the flower selling business. Proflowers.com has special assortments of flowers and nice collections of reasonably priced Peruvian Lilies. Such items are good and will help stretch your budget for Valentineâ??s Day.

Favorite Flower Delivery Site/Online Florist

I am trying to send some flowers to different sates. But can't seem to choose a site. Does anyone know of a favorite and reliable online florist or a flower delivery site? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Traditional flower bouquets are the most popular valentines day gifts

rose.jpgAs per the search statistics of MIVA, leading independent Performance Marketing Network, during the valentines day last year, traditional flower bouquets are the most popular valentines day gifts, followed by romantic getaways, jewellery and lingerie in that order.

The search statistics also reveal some slight country-specific variations in the keyword searches on the internet. For instance, Germans use text messages and ecards to say "I love you". In United Kingdom, the valentines treat their loved ones with luxury gifts such as jewellery or a romantic getaway to London, Edinburgh or Paris, the latter of which seems to be the epitome of romance. In United States, flowers, especially roses are the top gift on Valentine's Day followed by sterling silver jewellery. Romantic getaways are popular in Spain.

Flowers thus, again topped the list of valentines day gifts, only to prove flowers are always the most preferred gifts on valentines day.
